Alasdair (Masters Among Monsters Book 1) by Ella Frank



Bestowed with eternal life by the Ancient Vasilios, Alasdair Kyriakous is one of the most feared and ruthless vampires in existence. His name carries weight across all of the seven continents.

But he is a mystery to his kind, an anomaly among the self-indulgent. While he enjoys the pleasures of the flesh, he is exceptionally particular in his choice of partners and prides himself on his ironclad self-control.

Yet with one look his control will become a thing of the past, and Alasdair will discover that eternal life doesn't always last forever…


Thrust into a world he could never have imagined, Leo Chapel awakens in his worst nightmare. Taken hostage by the dangerously mesmerizing vampire, Alasdair, Leo must rely on his intelligence to escape before he reveals a secret he isn't even aware he's hiding.


Unaware that they've been brought together by an outside force and are little more than pawns to a higher power, Alasdair and Leo spend time trying to uncover the other's secrets, the attraction between them growing stronger all the while. 

But enemies are watching and preparing to act against them.  When decisions that will alter lives and destinies have to be made—can a dead, grey heart learn to beat again?

With no more than a flash of thought, he was inside the man’s room and standing at the foot of a large bed.

Locks. Such a useless human defense.

He cocked his head to the side and examined the book splayed open on the man’s naked chest. It looked as though it had fallen there when he’d drifted off to sleep, his fingers still resting against the glossy cover.

Heroes, Gods, and Monsters of the Greek Myths.

Now that is an unlikely coincidence.

A sinister smile morphed Alasdair’s lips, and he touched the tip of his tongue to the fangs elongating from his upper gums. The familiar surge of adrenaline caused his skin to come alive with awareness as his body prepared itself to do what it had been created for.

Raising his hand, he flicked his wrist and the covers whisked back. The man beneath was no more aware of the action than a slight shift in the air as a low sigh escaped him and he stretched his body, turning his head on the pillow.

The sight that greeted Alasdair made the hours he’d spent tracking well worth the time. When the human took a breath, the knotted drawstring tie of his linen lounge pants caught his attention. Fuck, that made him want to indulge his carnal side first. 

Maybe this was the root of his current obsession. In fact, that thought was followed by one truer to his perverse nature. How long would it take to have him clutching those covers from lust if I wanted it? And as Alasdair continued to observe the human, he realized just how much he wanted it.

The chest where the book was lying was covered in a light dusting of blond hair. It trailed a path along the center of the man’s sternum to his stomach, which looked as hard as his own. However, unlike his own abdomen, this man’s skin would be warm to the touch.

Perhaps he could take a moment or two and… No, he didn’t have the time, and that really was a shame. A meeting had been called this evening, and he was due at the Assembly Hall soon. The last thing he wanted to do was piss off the Ancients by being late.

So, with the speed and the stealth only his kind possessed, he was on the bed and stretched out above the man, and his mouth hovered over the ear closest to him.

He threw the book, which landed with a loud thump on the floor, and couldn’t stop himself from slipping one of his hands beneath those thin pants to curl his fingers around the flaccid cock he found inside. When a soft groan left the human, Alasdair used his other hand to capture his captive’s wrists like iron shackles and pin them above his head. Before the man had a chance to wake, he delved inside his head and projected an image of where this hunt would finally end.

My Alasdair Review . . .

The one thing I love about paranormal is the author basically has carte blanche when it comes to the story.  Anything goes, if it's made to be believable.

Within contemporary books, it's easy to just begin the story, but with paranormal sometimes the world has to be set so we can truly fall into that new world.   I found with Alasdair it took quite awhile for me to get immersed into this world.  The story started but took awhile to build up.  However, once it was built I was more hooked within the story. 

Alasdair, is a very powerful vampire, especially being first sire to Vasilios.  He's also one who doesn't stray far from his norm, until he sets eyes on Leo Chapel.

There's something intriguing about Leo, that has Alasdair drawn and confused.  The closer he becomes with Leo, the less that makes sense to him and his world.  Leo, doesn't have a hot clue what is going on, but one thing he does know is that he is explicitly drawn to Alasdair. The more he learns the more he's drawn, even though what he learns should cause him to run as far as way as possible.

As the story goes on, and the more we find out about this world the more the sexual tension builds between Alasdair and Leo.

"First, you terrorize me, then you kidnap me, and now, you're hell-bent on destroying my life.  If this is your version of playing with your food, I think you've taken it far enough."

As the heat is rising between these two, so is the beginning of the truth of what is to come.

"You want to fuck me? Then shut up and fuck me.  But you can look at me while you do it.  You don't get to forget my face once you're done with me come sunrise."

However, it all ends to soon and we are left waiting for more.

Did I eventually fall into this world and like it?  Yes.  Am I choked with the ending?  Yes, a bit as cliff hangers can be unnerving at times.  However, it's left me wanting more, so I will DEFINITELY be reading the next book to see how it all transpires.  Did I like Alasdair and Leo?  Yes, very much, but I'm still not sure about Vasilios yet.  Did I like the Greek language within the story?  Yes and no.  Yes, because it always adds something to the story but no because I didn't have a clue what any of the terms meant since my kindle nor itranslate were able to translate it for me.  A legend would have been helpful in this situation.

3. 5 Sexually Charged thumbs up!
